Gyari Dolma, the Kalon (minister) for Home of the Central Tibetan Administration said that she is not planning to resign, clarifying a rumour being spread that all the ministers of Sikyong Lobsang Sangay’s Kashag are planning to resign.
“I have been receiving calls from various places about a rumour that led by me, all the ministers will resign one after another. There is no truth in that.”
She said that the rumour is being spread following the sudden resignation of kalon Dicki Chhoyang on Sunday.
“To be able to serve as the Kalon for Home in Sikyong Lobsang Sangay’s Kashag is the most honourable and valuable experience of my life,” Dolma said.
“I will complete the office term.”
In the run-up to the 20 March polling to elect a new Sikyong, the exile Tibetan community is rife with rumours and speculations. Incumbent Sangay and Speaker Penpa Tsering are the two competing for the post.
